The place to discuss geotagging and 23places in particular

Searching via geotags

StevieB   December 05, 2007, 06:44 PM

I've just discovered the geotagging page (the places page) which was more by chance than anything else. You sure kept this fab feature quiet!

I've got one suggestion to make. From an individual photo page, would it be possible to provide a way of searching on both geo tags simultaneously? At the moment you can only search on latitude or longitude which is a bit meaningless. At the same time it would be good to make the search a bit "fuzzy", so that it searches for all geotags within a range (perhaps the equivalent to 50 kilometers, whatever that is in decimal places in the tag) so that you could find everybody's photos that were taken near to one of yours. Did that make any sense?
